Andrew Bird – Hot Math

On October 25, Andrew Bird will release Useless Creatures, an instrumental album which will include 9-tracks featuring guests Wilco’s Glenn Kotche and Todd Sickafoose. “Hot Math,” available as a free download from Bella Union.

Hot Math‘ is a lo-fi recording I made myself in my barn,” Bird said in a NY Times column last year. “It’s an example of a West African polyrhythmic groove I’ve been into for years and in this case I was clearly enjoying myself. This is elusive stuff. It just doesn’t work by choreography; you just have to be in the right mood.”
